Ocean Thoughts I

Ocean Thoughts 1

North Shore

The purple shoals brood

Like surly monsters

Crouching hunching

Tensed to heave their giant hides

Out of the azure sea

Dimpled droplets erupting

With a roar

Flinging fish

And flashing razor teeth

everywhere I turn at the moment there seems to be sea based poems. Loved the great descriptions in this. Excellent Cynthia. Beware of the deep!

You reflect the power and might of the sea well with great use of alliteration. I'm wondering if this is part of series of poems. Might we see a calm sea next? I'll look forward to the contrasts. x

A poem that simultaneously strikes awe and fear of the dormant power of the sea. I like this a lot. Everything is clear but nothing is overstated and while the menace is clear, what can happen is still subject to imagination.

This does a great job of describing the latent brooding menace of the sea, Cynthia
